Carole Smitherman, the president of the Birmingham City Council, wants to put a lid on top of Legion Field. To those of you not familiar with Legion:
1. It is almost 80 years old;
2. It is located in a slum (“kind of dead” according to a leader of that community);
3. The upper deck had to be removed because large parts were falling off and the next UAB game it hosted it would probably collapse, killing dozens of spectators;
4. It is very difficult to get to and not on any major roads.
Larry Langford wishes he could come up with something this crazy.
